you should warn your customers that this LED has the anode as well on the thermal pad
now as its mounted on a DTP star this is very unlucky for flashlights

if the star is not mounted electrically insulated to the lights body, you get a direct short whitch is not healthy


Thanks for confirm this (i asked it above but wasnt sure if thats the case)
best solution will be to reflow the led to non DTP mpcb

How does that compares against Sekisui #5760?

Why they are more expensive? Footprint doesnt influence on board self-cost.

Hi friend

Thank you for your interesting.

I recommend you to use ‘blf’ coupon code to get 5% off.

If you buy more than 3 pieces, you get get an extra volume discount.

You can gain more discount and cheaper price.

Since 7070 PCB is not the same as 5050 and 3535 PCB, we won’t make too many for stock and the unit price must be higher than others.

Thank you

Ban

Sounds wonderful, any idea of lumens?

Mine arrived today too, but as usual no time-window for testing in sight, perhaps monday Sad

This hobby requires being retired with kids moved out, so I will start the hobby in 2035.

I would like to ask for a improved system for displaying amount of items left in stock.

This is the third time i have ordered stuff and when i get the order home i have a note in the package saying one item is gonna be shipped at a later date.

Two items i am still waiting for, one of them i ordered in march and the annoying thing is that it still says it is ready to ship in 1-3 days one the item page.

Would be realy nice if you could get some sort of counter with remaining stock or atleast update it to say if items are out of stock.

I still realy like your shop i just think it could be better Smile

Interesting about the SST-40. If it pulls 8.4A direct drive and responds well to dedoming it could be an XPL-beater. Looking forward to testing, and I might buy a couple myself.

No reviews that I’ve seen, but given KD’s recent history of higher performing C8’s the specs of this new model should result in an impressive flashlight. It may not achieve the max lumens stated but it should be around 2000+

I don’t have any way of measuring of output, but a guestimate would be around 1800 OTF lumens.

If I find the time I will try to post some beam shots later and perhaps get some LED amp. numbers

EDIT :

I get 8,09A @ the LED on max with a 20 avg wire loop and a clamp meter.

Sorry no beam shots, when I reassembled the flashlight I nicked the positive wire creating a dead short :

The driver still works but I need to make a new tail switch.

I start to love KD as they seems to know a thing or two about flashlights and introducing interesting lights at the same time! I think it would be even better if KD uses XHP-70 in these KF8, K5 and C8.2 and drive them a little bit harder. Imagine pocket rocket!

believe me, the XHP50.2 is bright enough for a pocket rocket Big Smile
I do love KD, too.
It’s not the cheapest, not the fastest store, but they don’t sell as much junk as all the others and know what they are talking about.
Also, they sell a lot more DIY stuff than others do.
I mean – where else do you get a driver for XHP50 that uses only one cell?

Hi Tjhosan

Thank you for your advice.

I am sorry for the stock status that make you inconvenience.

In some case, we will take the parts or components to install the products. And it will cause the lack of stocks.

We must improve it.

Thank you

Received my KDIY K5 XHP50.2 NW today.
Quite happy with it.
Did a rough ceiling bounce test with a lux metre. I got 162 lux with my TM26 on the 1850 lumen mode. Got 174 on the K5 on turbo. So just under 2k lumens I’m guessing.
Does a bright preflash before going into the lowest setting. Not sure it’s all like that or just mine.
I think the light is great value.

If your lucky. Silly

My current and or voltage measurements are only relevent to anything that I measure.

You are right about everything. In the line of budget lights KD is one of the pioneers (if not the first one) to come out with this nice boost driver, a solution to many single 18650 flashlights in order to run a 6V emitter.

I do agree that a sub 2000 lumens single 18650 flashlight is very bright already, but as a flashaholic I simply can’t have enough of lumens! If they use that XHP70 and push that 20mm boost driver a little bit harder, 3000 lumens is still better than 2000 lumens!

Thanks kvetope! I have seen that one when searching for it. Hope someday I can see another one, although being “simple” it seems a good light!! Outside demonstration would be great, though…

Noticed after I posted that it preflash if you turn the light on and memory mode is on low too. Annoying

@BanL
Could you please give me exact measurements for this switch (http://www.kaidomain.com/p/S024079.DIY-LED-Flashlight-Reverse-Clicky-Swi...)? Most of your switches have a picture with all measurements only this nice square one not. And if you have more tech specs like max Ampere. . . it would be helpfull.
I marked the 3 measurement that i would like to know if it is possible (i am modding a light and want to change the complete switch construction and to know if it fits i need this information).
